This exceptionally beautiful stem plant was first introduced from Brazil as "Tonina spec. Belem" by the Japanese company Rayon Vert. Partly it is still labeled with the old name, however it has been identified as a Syngonanthus species some years ago. Tonina has only the single species T. fluviatilis. Both genera, Tonina and Syngonanthus, belong to the Pipewort family (Eriocaulaceae). Syngonanthus macrocaulon has branched stems with very densely set, narrow, delicate, 2-3 cm long, arched leaves. The rosette-like shoot tips resemble the crowns of certain tropical trees.

Comparable with Tonina fluviatilis and many Eriocaulon species, Syngonanthus macrocaulon grows best in soft, acid water with high CO2 concentration (about 30 mg/l). Strong lighting and a balanced nutrient supply are important as well. As well as other stem plant, the species can be propagated by stem cuttings.

Syngonanthus macrocaulon is a special eyecatcher as a bigger stand in the midground to background of larger tanks. It fits well in aquariums with other Eriocaulaceae that have the same requirements.

Please be aware that the submerse form of this plant could contain snails and other invertebrates.
